Beat the eggs for about 2 minutes on medium speed. Then add the sugar little by little, while continuing to beat until the mixture is ‘ribbon’ or meringue-like in consistency.

Add the other dry ingredients and mix with gentle enveloping movements

After that, pour the mixture into a rectangular tray wrapped in parchment paper and bake at 180°C for 13 minutes.


Melt the dark chocolate and slightly heat the cream cheese for 20 seconds to soften it. Add the chocolate to the cream cheese and mix until everything is homogeneous (you could also use a mixer to do this).


Melt the chocolate, heat the cream and mix.


Preheat the glucose in the microwave for a few seconds. Then, in a pot place the water, add the glucose, white sugar and mix over low heat until it turns caramel color.

Then add the chopped almonds and mix thoroughly

Pour the mixture into a tray with silpat (special pastry paper) and let cool to room temperature.


Sprinkle the cake with powdered sugar and unmold on parchment paper, placing it upside down and then sprinkle the missing side with powdered sugar.
